Full description
Central Park is probably the most famous and romantic park in the world. If you want to make a unique and special proposal or celebrate an anniversary, this ride is ideal. The tour includes a bottle of champagne to toast the special occasion, a bucket of roses, and pictures to immortalize the event. You are also welcome to pitch your own suggestions to make the ride even more creative. You can choose one of the following cinematic spots for you special moments: • Bow Bridge: The most famous place to propose ever, some people even refer to it as the "Bridge of Love" • Bethesda Fontaine and Terrace: Likely the most recognizable place in Central Park Making a proposal in Central Park is a tradition. A romantic horse-and-carriage ride is the gold standard of Central Park activities. With the aid of a stylish roofed carriage and warm blankets, it is one of the few Central Park activities that can be enjoyed in the rain, and it is also particularly beautiful in the winter time. You are also able to have a special arrangement with a profession photographer to make this occasion unforgettable. The photographer will be ready at the departure point, and will follow your ride whilst taking pictures secretly until the moment of proposal. Once you are done with proposing, the photographer will show up and take further photos. You will then proceed to the carriage together with the photographer. When you arrive at the carriage, you will receive a bucket of roses and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion. The ride then proceeds to the drop off location, and you will receive your photos after your tour via email.

Loved loved our tour guide. But when I made reservations it included roses and champagne. He did not have that. I spoke to someone before hand regarding the ride and told them it was not a proposal but I did want the roses and champagne. I was appreciative that Luis went out to get it, but would’ve preferred it be there before hand and to receive actual roses. We got flowers but not roses
